Your knee is one of the largest and most complicated joints in your body. Since you use it daily, it's also susceptible to injury (like ACL tears).
Some of the surgically advanced knee surgery options are:
- Knee replacement (removing a damaged joint and replacing it with an artificial one) and knee cap replacement
- Arthroscopy (using a lighted scope to access the knee and repair torn ligaments, among other things)
- Osteotomy (repositioning to take weight off a damaged part of the knee)
Your knees are complex.
Each knee contains the patella (your kneecap), and a network of tendons, ligaments, and muscles that help your knee connect to–and work with–the rest of your leg.
Your surgical team works hard to make sure that your knee operates to its full potential.
